SoCalGas® offers an array of energy-efficiency programs as part of our commitment to exceptional customer service. While this guide offers information on several ways SoCalGas can help save you money and energy, it is focused on the Energy-Efficiency Rebates for Business (EERB) program.
The EERB program offers rebates on qualifying energy-efficient gas-fired equipment and improvements for your business.
This document will guide you through the application process. Carefully read the program requirements, qualified equipment requirements and terms and conditions before purchasing equipment to determine whether you may be eligible.
Any commercial, industrial or agricultural customer with an active, valid and non-delinquent SoCalGas account can apply for a rebate under the EERB program. Whether you’re a small business or a large industrial customer, we have rebate opportunities for you. Residential customers are not eligible.
How well your Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system performs, and how much it costs to operate, depends in part on the proper installation of the system. Hiring a licensed contractor who obtains the required building permit and has knowledge of, and complies with, local codes, ordinances and the requirements of the Building Energy-Efficiency Standards (State Administrative Code, Title 24, Part 6) increases the likelihood that your system will be properly installed and will work efficiently, quietly and safely.
The California Energy Commission (CEC) is currently working on an implementation schedule for commercial customers to comply with the energy performance benchmarking disclosure regulations included in California Assembly Bill 11-3. This statute will require an energy performance benchmark disclosure of an ENERGY STAR® rating preceding the sale, lease or refinancing of commercial whole buildings.
SoCalGas encourages customers to benchmark their facilities’ energy usage by using the complimentary online ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager benchmarking tool. Energy-efficiency benchmarking is a method of comparing a facility’s level of energy efficiency with that of similar facilities nationwide. It allows building owners and managers to track and assess the energy performance of their buildings over time. Benchmarking is a key step in identifying opportunities to increase profitability by lowering energy and operating costs.

A Rebate check for qualified equipment is generally mailed 45 days after SoCalGas approves a correct and complete application that includes all required documentation. Please note that additional time may be required if your application is selected for random inspection. The precise rebate amount may be subject to subsequent adjustment by SoCalGas.
The EERB program is funded by California utility customers, administered by Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas®_ under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission. Program funds, including any funds utilized for rebates or incentives, will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis until such funds are no longer available. The EERB program may be modified or terminated without prior notice. Eligibility requirements apply.
